I say tough questioning, but it really wasn’t tough questioning, at all – just tough compared to what he’s probably used to from the lib media. She was just asking questions and demanding answers that actually made sense.
See if you can follow Baghdad Jim’s logic, here… He blustered that he said five times during his statement at the hearing, yesterday, that the questions the IRS requested from the the conservative groups were “egregious, out of bounds, and shouldn’t have been asked”, but then, in the same breath noted that by asking for tax exempt status, they opened themselves up to such questions. Say what?
When Megyn asked him about Kevin Kookogey’s testimony about his group’s loss of a $30,000 donation because they hadn’t received the stamp of approval in officially becoming a 501(c)(4), he said Kookogey wasn’t under oath and didn’t offer any proof. When she pressed him as to whether he rejected his claim, he got mad, and huffed, “STOP IT!!!”

Just another one of the bright stars of the Democrat party. I’m sure his constituents are proud.
Congressman Jim Bridenstine speaking truth to power on the House floor on 6-3-2013:
Remember the shock and outrage another Republican congressman inspired when he called the president a liar? Obama was addressing a joint session of congress about Obamacare in Sept of 2009, and Joe Wilson could no longer contain himself. He famously blurted out, “LIAR!!!” but was “shamed” into apologizing, later on even though he was absolutely correct that Obama was lying through his teeth as we all now know. Something tells me Bridenstine will not be apologizing.
Via Gateway Pundit the Tulsa World reported:
U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine portrayed President Barack Obama as a petty, bumbling liar matched only by Vice President Joe Biden during a speech Monday on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.
“The president’s dishonesty, incompetence, vengefulness and lack of moral compass lead many to suggest he is not fit to lead,” Bridenstine said.
“The only problem is that his vice president is equally unfit and even more embarrassing.”
Bridenstine makes a good point. How many of us have been tempted to jump on the #IMPEACH! bandwagon, only to have second thoughts at the specter of a “President Biden”. Egad. This is a lose-lose.
